Do you know what this means? (Mother points to Her signature)
No? Wait. I’ll show you. (Mother draws a bird above the signature) Do you see it?
This is a graphic representation of the signature. It means: *The Bird of Peace Descending upon Earth. It has its wings tilted towards the earth.* It is coming down to the earth. You see the angle of its wings and how it is descending towards the earth? It is to bring Peace. It is the messenger of Peace. *The Bird of Peace Descending upon Earth.* You see?
Yes, Mother, but…
Now I will explain to you how this bird corresponds to the signature. (Mother shows the sketch of the bird) Look, first, this is the tail of the bird. Here are the two tips of the tail, and I extend it as the wing which is seen like a curved line. You have seen the tails of birds, they are like this.
So, with these two tips of the tail and one wing, it is one part of the bird. And this is the other wing. They are large wings. And these are the eyes which are represented here by these two points. And here is the head.
Sketch done by the Mother explaining Her Signature
One sees the bird appearing from far, that is why one sees only the eyes that shine and not all the details of the figure. It has very large wings and it is inclined like this to one side, that is why its body is hidden. One does not see its body, it is hidden behind its large wings. And from far one sees only its two eyes and the beak and all that. Because it is only the eyes that shine — the eyes reflect the soul. They are important, the eyes. So it is like this: the tail joins with one wing and this is the other wing, and these two points are the eyes. (Mother points out all these on the sketch)
Now, do you see it?
Yes, Mother, it is true.
Did you know this?
No, Mother, and it is interesting.
This is the symbolic representation of the Bird of Peace Descending upon Earth. Instead of drawing the whole bird each time, I have made a symbolic drawing which represents this bird. You can see clearly this is the bird in flight which is descending towards the earth. It is still far, but one day it will alight upon the earth. Then, there will be Peace. This, then, is the significance of my signature.
It comes from another world to bring Peace down here. Do you understand?
But, Mother, it has nothing to do with… “Mira”… Your name?
No, absolutely nothing. Nothing to do with all that. It is only people who give stupid interpretations. It is because they imagine this way and attach a significance in conformity with their imagination. It has nothing to do with my name.
But, Mother, I have seen on Your photos, some old photos, where You have signed “Mira” with this signature in the beginning.
Nonsense, it has nothing to do with it. “Mira”, (Mother writes) it is like this and has nothing to do with my signature. These are only baseless imaginations. (Mother draws) The signature is this. It is *the Bird of Peace Descending upon Earth*. And not all these stories. Do you understand?
